proposal, quote, isn't just about guns. our poll shows 56% do want stricter gun laws. 7% say gun laws today are too strict. 35% don't want any changes. 20 years ago the last time that real changes were debated, in gun laws, a full 2/3 of the country wanted stricter gun laws. this time the public appears to be looking at a complex set of reasons behind the string of mass shootings. we asked respondents to essentially tell us and they ended up ranking it but to tell us what they believe bears a great deal or good amount of responsibility for the spate of mass shootings. more people blamed lack of parental involvement with their own children. inadequate mental health treatment. even violent video games and violence in entertainment in our culture all before they talked about availability of assault weapons or high capacity clips. all for those recent gruesome shootings we've seen over the last five years. they are all seen as big contributors by the way. nobody is saying they're not. even the assault weapons ban. more folks said the first three were bigger contributors. biden himself spe

fast to change gun laws in their states, will support on the state level help or hurt the white house push here in washington? promises promises. today a deep dive into a president obama pitched as candidate obama and what he did from that first inaugural speech to his announcement speech and, of course, when he accepted that nomination. we are looking back at all of it. it is very interesting and you should take look. good morning from washington. tuesday, january 15, 2013. this is the -- little bit late, "daly run-down." i'm chuck todd. first reads of the morning. with washington once again careening towards a fiscal crisis, this one now about debt and spending. the president used his last news conference of his first term to make it clear he intends to stand firm and refuse to negotiate over the debt limit. >> republicans in congress have would choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. they will not collect ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the president rejecte

gay brothers and sisters are treated like anybody else under the law. >> and if there was any question about whether president obama would go big in his second term, he answered that in this address, laying out an ambitious second-term agenda from tax reform, to immigration overhaul, preserving the social safety net, to reducing gun violence. and he promised progress on climate change. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change, snowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. >> yesterday, leaving the inaugural platform on the west front, the president waxed nostalgic. >> i want to take a look one more time. i'm not going to get to see this again. >> now, great britain has royal weddings, but this was a uniquely american ritual, with all its pageantry, a time when the city seems full of former presidents, when hollywood descends, every once in a while this happens, on the potomac. music's first couple, that's beyonce and jay-z watched him take the earth. and president carter started another transition 36 years, getting out of the pre

kansas are not looking for new laws out of washington. they're looking for more involvement in their communities, and their families at the state level. >> these gun control measures that have been reported in the news are extreme and they're antithetical to the spirit of liberty. >> we want all tools available to use, including the impeachment. he's even using children. it reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> how the white house and how democrats on capitol hill pushing the various pieces of legislation, what do they emphasize. we can tell you this, the one they know is going to be the hardest is the assault weapons ban. the one the president is going to put the most effort on is the universal background checks. last night, the house approved $50 billion in aid to help states rebuild after hurricane sandy. that was not news. we expected them to do that. the news, though, was how this bill passed. it passed with a majority of democratic votes in the house. the sandy aid package passed 241 to 180, which is 49 republicans gaining 192 democrats to vote in favor of it. it m

a new law. >>> a limit on the size of magazine clips. the president wants legislation to limit clips to ten bullets. something that would have reduced, perhaps, the number killed in the aurora, colorado movie theater massacre. >>> and then there is the president's most important push. and that's for universal background checks. this is probably the thing that has the best chance of getting through congress. has the support of some gun rights advocates. and might, just might, get bipartisan support. universal background checks could have prevented the columbine high school gunman from buying an assault weapon from a private seller who had bought it at a gun show. the president also proposed clearing the way for schools who want armed guards to get them. but he made just a passing reference to violent video games calling for research on their effects. and there was not a single mention of hollywood, violence, television or movies. president obama knows the only way anything meaningful will get done, though, on guns is if gun control advocates are able to tap into public emotion.
